A Unique Business Plan for a Unique Marketplace
If you’re an experienced entrepreneur, and thinking that you can just do a little research, throw together a business plan, hire a few people and you’re off… think again. Cannabis is a highly regulated, rapidly evolving industry where the rug can be pulled out from under your feet if you’re not aware of and prepared for the challenges ahead of you. These complex and evolving hurdles can hinder your business or take it out entirely if you don’t know what to look for. Our seminars can show you how to adjust your business plan and operating procedures to compensate for changes while remaining profitable.
The cannabis industry provides a unique opportunity, and with that opportunity comes unique challenges.
Cannabis was popular long before it was legal. The shift from criminal to legally profitable is relatively new. The states are fighting with the federal government over who is allowed to do what, and everyone is writing their laws to get their share of the taxes with little regard for a consensus on best practices. Federal regulations are coming along very slowly, even though the green rush in full sprint. Cannabis, Hemp, THC, CBD – ironically, half the lawmakers don’t even know what this stuff is!
It’s downright scary. That’s why many legislative bodies count on experts to help them draft the laws so they can understand what constitutes a flowering plant, and where to draw the line between THC percentages in CBD, and more. They call on experts like us.
Know Your Market, then Grow Your Market
We’ve seen it all, from all over the country – markets where production is outpacing demand. Or where demand is outpacing production. Even where legislation is crippling the industry if the correct hoops aren’t jumped through. When the laws change faster than the bureaucracy can keep up, and conflicting laws cripple companies who weren’t ready to pivot when needed, startups need to be in the know to succeed.
It’s a crazy market out there, and it’s changing daily with legislators rewriting the laws constantly.
Every state has different laws governing their cannabis markets. They range from medical versus adult use, to how many licenses you can apply for, and even to what prerequisites are needed to apply for a license. Some states are pro-big cannabis; some are anti-big cannabis. These are important pieces of the market landscape to know before entering the marketplace. You need to understand what you’re up against in your state, as every market is different.
Strike While the Iron Is Hot
If you want to know the latest developments in your cannabis market, you need someone with their ear to the ground, that can help you establish a rock-solid business plan. You need to outline the steps to successfully get off the ground operationally, legally, and ready to deal with the tax hurdles. Our seminar will give you the leg up in understanding where to position yourself, what steps to take to prepare for the upcoming change, what those changes are most likely to be and how best to take advantage of the opportunities provided in your state.
That’s just the beginning.
Once cannabis becomes legalized federally, which it will, you need to be ready to deal with the national market and be positioned correctly for when the big corporations come in, which they will. We can show you everything you need to know to get started and succeed in the cannabis business. Attend our free seminar to find out more about what you can do to improve your chances of being a real player in the industry.
